Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen (Hasbro) - Deluxe Class
So far one of 2 well known Generation 1 characters to be reintroduced in the new movie. He is a the prototype of the new Corvette Stingray. I'm actually fairly happy with this figure as the head is a much better sculpt that what they have been giving us. Sadly like most of the movie figures his hands aren't that impressive and weapons are next to non-existant with the only ones you get is a lame sword build into his arm. Missing is the shoulder mounted missiles of his G1 self and the flashy red paintjob has been replaced by the standard GM Silver they love to use. The articulation is fair although I still prefer the articulation from the Universe figures more. A nice touch is the "tinted" blue windows set up in the traditional stingray arrangement. Much like Bumblebee in the first movie his flashy new form will attract a lot of attention. I'd have been happier with his original red color or even his black coloring from his Generation 2 reissue. This figure is ripe for, and practically crying for, modifications. He appears to be a fairly easily modified figure but as with many of the movie figures his elaborate system to transform makes tearing him down a pain. Overall I give this figure a 4. The minor problems aren't enough to make him uncollectible and to be honest so far he's one of the best figures in the line.
